Delve into the cultural heritage of Surabaya by visiting a cigarette factory, commemorative war monument and a 5-star hotel that reflects more than a century of local history.


Arrive in the heart of Surabaya for a tour of the House of Sampoerna. The Dutch colonial-style compound was built in the 19th century as an orphanage, but was later converted into a theater and then into a cigarette factory and museum. At the museum, guests can see a hall with some traditional machines for rolling the cigarettes, where, in the past, hundreds of women hand rolled, trimmed and packed the Dji Sam Soe brand (banned from most countries as the tar content is so strong). The fastest rollers here churned out 325 cigarettes an hour, their fingers a blur of motion.


Continuing on, you will next visit the Heroes Monument, a towering obelisk that commemorates the Indonesian soldiers and civilians that died in the Battle of Surabaya in 1945. The conflict eventually led to Indonesian independence in 1949.


A panoramic drive through the city takes you to the Majapahit Hotel, a more than 100-year-old lodging that the Japanese used as their headquarters in East Java during World War II. This classic landmark blends romance and elegance with its graceful colonial architecture. While touring, you will see how the hotel has evolved into a 5-star resort.
